Beloved German folk/rock performer CONNY OCHS has released a new video from his latest LP, Doom Folk, which saw release in early 2019 through Exile On Mainstream. Filmed by Lutz Kretschmann, the stark “King Of The Dead” video showcases the soloist performing the track at Kabumm Studio, Germany where Doom Folk was recorded.
CONNY OCHS states of the song, “Doom Folk has brought me across some darker streets. But I found so much light, too. This song is about that. I am deeply thankful for having the chance to travel, experience, transform and this goes out to all those great folks I have met in the last year. Stay wild and real, such as you are. In light and dark, you move the world.”

CONNY OCHS believes that the best stories are always the ones yet to be told. He seeks to envision signs of the world that are concealed to most others, and to explore them in a more detailed and higher density. On his new album, Doom Folk, OCHS follows different pathways to those which he has forged before, channeling his observations into narratives driven by two powerful forces, fervor, and vulnerability.
Doom Folk was fully written and performed by CONNY OCHS, recorded at Kabumm Studio, Golzow in Germany in April 2018, produced and engineered by Thommy Krawallo. Melancholy, insanity, attrition, and hope are nestled into OCHS‘ loud/quiet dichotomy, which is carried forward by clean tones, nuanced instrumentation, and beautiful, authentic singing, before erupting into distortion and dissonance. The album offers twelve new songs delivering thirty-eight minutes of instantly infectious, humble and humbling, emotive folk/rock magnificence.
